Letting Go: Dying Consciously

582494_10151305942551516_1554402030_n

We have such a hold on life. We cling to ideas, material things, and each other. Such clinging, and holding on provides our “meaning and identification” of who we believe we are.  Yet life is about letting go,  experiencing the full measure of each drop of time. Life is the gentle flow of the water, the raging of the river, and the stillness within the pool.

Death is but another bend on the journey in the water’s flow. Death, brings transition, transformation to new form, and frees the Soul into a new realm of existence. This is our greatest moment, to let go and fall into acceptance. We can fight, struggle, and rage against this storm, but we will no longer have control of our physical being.  In this fight, we bring pain and anguish. We can plead, beg, and negotiate; and bring on further mental despair. Or we can enter this new sacred space with gentle peace, allowing acceptance and grace to wash over us.

To die consciously is to bring the fullness of our life, love, and acceptance to our deathbed. To know that we have offered our greatest service through this Divine life, and to honour our journey; by embracing our next adventure, unafraid of where it may lead. To let go at death, is to merge our consciousness with that of Creator, and moving freely again into the cosmic oneness and dwell within the light.

“When a soul is out of the cocoon of the (three) bodies it escapes forever from the law of relativity and becomes the ineffable Ever-Existent. Behold the butterfly of Omnipresence, its wings etched with stars and moons and suns! The soul expanded into Spirit remains alone in the region of lightless light, darkless dark, thoughtless thought, intoxicated with its ecstasy of joy in God’s dream of cosmic creation.”  ~ Sri Yukteswar~ From Autobiography of a Yogi~

 

Religious Persecution & Religious Harmony

410w

We are one race- the race of humanity. We are all one creation and as such, we are all connected. We all equally share in the responsibilities and experiences of glory upon this earth, and  we each share equally share in the experiences of pain upon this earth.

As human beings we each have the right to live harmoniously, and to choose freely our religious beliefs and doctrine- or to not choose religious belief. While we may have these rights, a large and growing percentage of people are being persecuted for their beliefs. It is currently estimated that 500 million people, live in places where they are being persecuted for their religious beliefs. Our religious freedom is protected by both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and two subsequent UN declarations. There are some groups that refuse to condemn persecution on the grounds that it’s a “God-imposed” test of faith to be endured rather than an evil to be resisted. But this misguided perspective both insults and disrespects God, and displays an insensitivity to victims of attack, torture, and discrimination.

I am one of those individuals. I am being persecuted for my religious beliefs and lifestyle- operating a spiritually based healing center.  I honour and follow Buddhist traditions and customs, rather than conform to Christian religion.  I deeply honour and respect all religious beliefs and views and I maintain that at their core, they all hold similar values.

I have a right to live harmoniously, honouring and observing my belief structures; just as you have a right to yours. I have a right to share in the glory and bounty of this earth; as do you and every other human being.  As a Christian your religious doctrine teaches “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34.

To my attackers I say: “Your lack of love, respect, and religious intolerance is unacceptable”. You persecute and attack me for my beliefs; yet I perceive your acts as feeble attempts of “control and power”.  I am saddened that you lack the depth and understanding of who I am as a human being, and who we are as one divinely connected human race.  According to Buddhist philosophy, happiness is the result of an enlightened mind whereas suffering is caused by a distorted mind.  A distorted mind, in contrast to an enlightened mind, is one that is not in tune with reality. (His Holiness the Dalai Lama).

Buddhist teachings are those of peace, compassion and love. I offer you love and compassion, as I do for all sentient beings. Our greatest gifts can be offered to each other when we find common ground to share our views and values; honour and respect each other, and live harmoniously.

I send prayers for your healing and well-being, and release from your own inner pain and demons.

You Are Not Your Story

We live by experience, and we create our stories.  Today you will go out into the world, and you will share your story, your life history; the epic adventures that make up the sum of who you are. What is your story, what will you share?

Our stories are our methods to define ourselves in ways that bring us meaning. We create labels and we use these labels and stories, wearing them like mantles. We become them- from the very moment we tell the tale, to the embellishment of how our story affects and defines our life. Everything that we are, becomes wrapped and cloaked in this one life story; and it is this story that creates our perceived truths, values, and beliefs.

Your story and my story, are small “snippets”, momentary snapshots into the window of our BEings. Our story by no means defines, labels, or explains who we are. The story we each have created can be compared to a “movie trailer”, showing one miniscule fragment of action in an otherwise lengthy drama feature.

We use our stories to define, categorize, and label; good and bad events, people, and experiences.  The story with its labels become our focal points and measures for success, happiness, and wellbeing; or lack thereof.

Stories and experiences are important, they serve as instruments helping us make sense of a complicated world. But our stories are not our ultimate truths.  Who are you truly: if you have no career, no powerful job title, no home, no car, no money, no relationship, no physical health? What if you have lost mental health? How does society, and the world at large define and label you then?

So, who, and what are you then, without all of these labels and stories?

It is my belief that what lies deep within and through; is the answer. You are pure essence – energy; pure God source. You are love. You exist as love; and nothing less. You, as pure God source are here to love, to serve, and to experience. You are here to live to your highest and most divine capacity; to reveal the God source within you. How you choose to use, define, and measure your experiences and stories is left to you alone. You can use those stories as a mantle to cloak yourself within, or you can reveal the true essence of your being- and live as God source. To live as God source, is to remove the need for stories, labels, comparisons, measures of success or failure. As pure God source you exist here, and now, to love, experience, and serve. Each experience then, when viewed through the lens of Divine God source, is absolutely perfect and brilliant; nothing less.

Through this Divine lens, you discover that revealing your truth, is the only thing to do. It becomes the right thing to do. You exist, you BEcome, and you live our your life in a way that honours that understanding; serving and being in reverence to all.  How others perceive you becomes their story and their label.

Will you remove the mantle to unveil your true essence?
